(''...and half the kingdom...'')

Apologies, I haven't had time to continue the main storyline over at the ballroom, because those pages are pretty demanding even when I'm shunting the colours off to my faithful put-upon aides.

So here is a quick doodle, because I saw this quote - those words exactly - going around as a text post on tumblr, possibly one of those ''drunken texts from last night'' things, I forget the source. And someone had tagged it as a Tentoo quote, and then quite rightfully the Labyrinth fandom reclaimed it. (Look, I have quite the soft spot for that ship as well, but I'm sorry, this line is definitely Jareth's.)

And that retro-actively fits in neatly with GND continuity circa #127 - Double-glazed Fairytale - and what Sophie mentions Jareth and Howl have been up to.

GND127-Double glazed Fairytale by Pika-la-Cynique

Howl is torn between being 100% comprehending and supportive because stubborn love interests, man, he's been there, but also, ''OMG I've MET Sarah, great-great-great-great-grand-uncle Jareth, I cannot be hearing this''.

Calcifer is probably chuckling sparks in the background somewhere, sorry I didn't include him in the pity party.


This is a work of fanart and solely intended for shits and giggles. Not my characters, not making money off it.

Howl/Hauru (c) Dianne Wynn Jones by way of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, or vice versa
Jareth (c) Henson, Froud, Lucas and Bowie.

Based on the original Roommates comic by AsheRhyder

And fortunately I've now actually seen  the Japanese "Howl's Moving Castle" and thus have some idea of why 'bird-wizards' applies! (Isn't it 'Diana Wynne Jones'?... *hides*)

I've also been tracking down the Harry Dresden books in about eight different libraries (and trying -- and signally failing -- to read them more or less in order: it does rather throw the suspense out of the early plots when the first book you find features Thomas and Justine!)
But of course I'm always mentally seeing Dresden as your version now :D
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2014  Professional General Artist
Ah, I may have made a mental fudge with Diane Duane, who is also quite wunderbar.

Yay Dresden. :)

Two things:

1) I just started reading a week ago, and holy fangasm this whole comic is fantastic.

2) Forgive an ignorant noob, but does GND have a regular update schedule? Just checking so I can adjust my webcomic update rota accordingly.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Professional General Artist
Very glad you've enjoyed thus far. I'm sorry you're coming in at a time of patchy updates - used to be a weekly thing, on wednesdays, but my demanding RL projects this year, plus the extra time needed to coordinate with my volunteer colour artists, mean I have become quite unreliable.
lolaloliepop Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Student General Artist
not Pika, but it doesn't seem to have a regular update schedule which is really sad because it's hard to remember what's going on when updates are months apart :(
AkatsukiMirage Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
This is awesome! XD
crazeyal Featured By Owner May 9, 2014
Back to waiting for an update..

Louisa was ill, on top of my own tardiness. 2 pages are in the pipeline tho. ;)

I hope you and yours are feeling better.

Oh, Jareth. I'd hug you, but I don't know how to get glittery sex appeal out of my clothing.
HCQ1010 Featured By Owner May 7, 2014
Is it bad that I added a drunken lisp in my head when I read that line?  Great writing and artwork, as always!  Can't wait for the next story post!
